Cinderella and the Frog Prince

Cinderella

On Friday, January 23 there was a play and it was called Cinderella and the Frog Prince.  It was a fun play to watch and participate in.  I was in the play.  It was very cool to watch from behind the scenes.  First, they started in one costume, then they dressed up in another.  They were quiet and quick.  At first I thought I had to change and be quiet and quick too but no, the actors (Alex, Jaydon & Abby) gave me 5 or 6 lines to read and the best part was that I was acting in my p.j’s. No costume, just p.j’s.

The play was about Cinderella not liking the frog for who he was on the inside.  She only saw an ugly green frog but she was missing a lot.  She was missing a fun friend on the inside.  So the frog wished he could be a school student so he could look like everyone else.  That’s where I came in and told Cinderella that I was still the same inside and out.  Finally, Cinderella understood the meaning of friendship.  The message of the play was, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover/don’t judge someone by what they look like on the outside.”
